Re: What focal length for the most realistic pictures?

"What is the best focal length to record the “true” or “real” outer world?"

:

There isn't one, everybody is different.

But, I like 21mm for shots that closely replicates my peripheral vision (great for landscapes and street scenes). For subjects, I like normal focal lengths (usually 55mm).
